Default ACDSee

Funny name for I hadn't known that this software has the same name as the legendary rock and roll band ACDC and also the types of current AC and DC. But the important thing is that it has come up with some exciting and new punches this photo editor is just awesome and is packed with many many new improvements to it's older version. It's much more sleeker to the eyes it supports windows 8 properly it has also added an online interface and also a competition for who can edit better pictures. So, this photo editing software is worth your while.

That software has been around for like 15 years and no its not that great. I'd rather use GiMP or something else.

I preferred ACDsee when it was just a viewer, back before they bogged it down with a whole lot of crap.

Much like the Dr stated, ACDSee was my go to viewer a long time ago. But they've loaded it up with garbage, and the advent of Gimp and Irfanview really renders it useless.

I used Acdsee back in the Windows 3.11 days. Its speed was amazing at the time. Eventually it was replaced by Irfanview as an image viewer.

I'm happy that the company has found a niche. Gimp and Photoshop aren't for everyone.

Photoshop CS2 is free, I can't imagine there being any other free software out there that is anywhere near as good for photo editing.

Adobe's competing product isn't Photoshop. It's Lightroom:

Download Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 photo software | Adobe Lightroom 5

Photoshop isn't intuitive to many people.

Lightroom and Photoshop are TWO very different programs.

Lightroom is simply a program to edit, manipulate and modify photos.
Photoshop is a all around image editing suite to do MUCH MUCH more.

ACDSee is a photo library application?
